Now that we are closing in on the end of another year, I’ve decided to purge my blog of irrelevant, dated, and potentially embarrassing posts.
Have you ever done such a thing?
One thing that makes this difficult to do is my desire to keep a record, a desire document my past in order to remember it, or at least pass it on to my kids and grand kids (if I ever have any).
But at some point I need to accept the fact that filling up my WordPress memory with posts that are never read or not worth reading is nothing short of hoarding. There is only so much memory, and I’m not paying for extra.
So, if you have ever purged your posts, what criteria did you use?
Leave a comment and let’s talk about it.
Blessings to you all!
I would love to be writing more, but I’m too busy, spread a little too thin.
But don’t worry, I’m gathering thoughts along the way. It won’t be long before I’ll have a few things to share…
a few items to discuss…
a few observations to unpack…
Hint words: hotels, packing, hospitals, local food, ear plugs, strangers, Air Force One, Jesus, the ark, creation, family, rock ‘n roll…etc
Looking forward to it 🙂

“Writing is almost like creating something from nothing: from the mind into reality. Therefore, writing brings the writer joy because in his DNA is the ink stain of the One who created him.” – A. Baker
(See Genesis 1:26 and John 1:1-4)
I don’t know if you have noticed, but I have not been writing much in the last few weeks. Maybe it’s just a season in my life, or maybe it’s just that writing takes a lot of work (if you want to do it well).
So, this morning I decided I would try to write, but I didn’t know what to write about! How could this be? Are there not enough stories in the news? Have there not been any blessings to share? Have I not heard any funny jokes?
Do I have writer’s block?
Well, if I did, I don’t anymore! Because I decided to write about having writer’s block.
The cure for writer’s block is writing about having writer’s block. Something’s bound to come from it.
It’s sort of like praise. When you don’t think you’ve got anything to praise God for, just praise Him anyway, and then all the reasons will come.
Praise God for mercy, grace, and love. Thank Him for Bethlehem, Golgotha, and the empty grave. Thank the Lord…praise Jesus…for no matter what you’re going through today, still His promises remain true, His faithfulness is everlasting, and you’re not alone!
I can thank Him for writer’s block.
